#TBT - Gourmet, April 2007


I've kept this particular magazine for seven years (yes, seven!) not because I'm trying to be a gourmet chef or because I even love cooking, but because this glossy's cover is so gorgeous. I must admit, I thought it featured an image of a carrot cake, one of my all-time favorite desserts. It turns out this cover actually portrays a delicious looking Pecan Spice Layer Cake With Cream Cheese Frosting, and the recipe now lives on epicurious.com. Gourmet sadly folded in 2009, so I'm happy to revive its contents here on B & G.

First, however, I'm behooved to mention that while searching online for an acceptable replica of Gourmet's April 2007 cover image to share on this blog, I came across some eBay listings for old glossies for sale. So to all of those criticizers of my magazine "hoarding" habit, AKA my husband and family members and Jesse Silver, let it be known that we can make a small fortune off of my esteemed magazine collection. 

Now back to Gourmet, "The Magazine Of Good Living." I'm delighted to have unearthed this mag just in time for Fall cooking. It may have hit newsstands in the Spring seven years ago, but this glossy contains classic recipes perfect for Fall, especially the Pecan Spice Layer Cake. In fact, I think it'd make a delicious addition to a Thanksgiving meal. See here for instructions.
